COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Poured from can into pint glass: Pours dark red with a wonderful waterfall effect from the foam injecting widget. Two fingers of creamy white foam sites on top while carbonation slowly releases to meet the head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is malty, a little sweet, a little musky and a bit of hop on the back end. Palate is creamy and smooth. I enjoy this beer when it is fresh and in the can. It’s not the same in a bottle, and if it’s old it is way too sweet. This is a good can.

Lilja (1634) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell med toner av citrus. Rund och len och goda smörkolasmaker. En bra öl för att vara en 3,5%:are.

Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a creamy white pour which gradually gave way to a full amber color beneath to form a large, creamy white head with excellent retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured notes of toffee and caramel, along with some malt and yeast. It was a fairly sweet and lighter beer with notes of caramel and toffee, and a slight grainy presence. The body was very creamy and smooth with low/average carbonation and a wet body. Thank you for the present, Corey and Carolyn!

Dark Amber colour, Smells a bit like burn’t toffee. Closest taste match I can think of to describe it like watery whiskey. A definite must try.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Clear deep amber with 2 finger frothy head that is creamy white and medium long and leaves lacing. Aroma has English malting that is nutty and has toffee, nice sweet and bit roasted and nuanced aroma, hops bit under this. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, round and soft feel, long aromatic finish. Did not find much fruits in this one, hops are more earthy toned. Very nice malting, nuanced and tasty, nice bitter.
